App Concept

Bike Dept. is the best mobile app for bike shares

By more accurately calculating bike availability, we can be sure of when and where bikes are available. Bike Dept. crunches the numbers to make sure you get the closest available bike.


Thanks to an intelligent mix of live feeds, hourly trending, and historical results, we don’t only know if a bike’s available now, we can predict if one will be there when you’re ready.

Broken Equipment

We track broken bikes and docks and removes them from the map. If it’s broken, we won’t send you there and we’ll make sure you find the next good one.

Number of Riders

Bike riding is more fun with friends. Tell us how many riders you have and we’ll automatically adjust the results so everyone gets a set of wheels at the same dock.

Filter Stations

Fan of surefire things? Remove red and yellows stations from the map with a swipe of your finger and see the docks that definitely have bikes waiting for you.
